Lively up your Earth !
The 4th annual festival at Solitude Farm
February 22nd, 2014
Lively up your Earth eco-music festival is a celebration of community, ecology, permaculture, music and creativity and the work going on at Solitude Farm Auroville, the venue of the festival.
The festival is a one day event, this year on 22nd February 2014. It starts with a farmers market and eco-stalls selling their wares, such as organic baby clothes, seed banks, solar cycles, tetrapak furniture and more. There are also workshops in compressed mud bricks, capoeria, lost wax bronze casting, acro-yoga and again lots more! There is also a truly amazing magic show, a tarot tent and a healing tree where your inner and outer being can get revitalized! We give a special focus to the kids space, face-painting, henna, clay play, recycling art projects and a toddlers den, so families are very welcome. Finally there is the awesome organic food served in our cafe prepared with maximum ingredients from the farm and other Auroville farms.
The music starts at 1PM and goes on for about 12 hours. This year we have two stages, one for bigger bands which will be playing jazz, rock, pop, fusion etc. and one with more intimate, accoustic acts such as hindustani vocal, Russian folk and unique musical-meetings between some of the participating muscians.
